Lisa Ouakil

Lisa Ouakil‘s pictorial work is essentially focused on painting. Her work is always deeply linked to the notion of movement. Each canvas is a moment of change between reality and fiction, between the extraction of an image and its overcoming. Most often derived from photographs, her paintings are developed around the analogy between the pictorial material and the flesh, notions of fragmentation of the body and of the landscape, with particular attention to the use of colours. The artist pays particular attention to rocky, volcanic, but also charnel and organic forms, first elements of a painting that are both concrete and sensual.
